Wesbild Donates $20,000 for New Book Bus

Last week, Wesbild announced a $20,000 donation to the Coquitlam Public Library to help fund their Book Bus.

The library has been raising money to replace the Book Bus after a fire destroyed the original bus in 2014. The new Book Bus will feature over 3000 library books, publications and resources, and will be fully wheelchair accessible. The Book Bus is expected to be in service in July 2015.

“We are pleased to have Wesbild support this important services,” said Library Director Todd Gnissios. “With this mobile Library Link we bring the power of discovery, creativity and knowledge out into our neighbourhoods and provide them a doorway to all of the services the Library offers.”
